There are 35 fantastic camp sites all along the river banks with views up and down the river under the River Red Gums.
But of course you don’t camp under those, unless like a retired beekeeper we met, see later shot, who said, "If you hear it crash then you are still alive", If you don’t, then it doesn’t matter anymore!"
Mary dragged the fire place over from a crummy spot, to ours, and then with our load of wood from outside the park, we had some good billy boiling fires.
We had a whole lay day here with cups of tea, books, and photographic walks along the river bank.
The map location is approx only.. at one of 50 great campsites along this stretch of river in the National Park.

Love these quotes from.. www.flickr.com/photos/johnwhite/
"Use what talent you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best."
Henry Van Dyke
"We don`t make a photograph just with a camera; we bring to the act of photography all the books we have read, the movies we have seen, the music we have heard, the people we have loved."
"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever—it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything" …
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bow lines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
"…but it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much; my heart fills up like a balloon and it’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax. And stop trying to hold on to it. And then it flows through me, like rain, and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for *every* single moment of my life…".
